are definitely looking out for you. >> sean: this is a fox news alert. a seven-day standoff in alabama where a five-year-old boy was being held in an underground bunker is now over. the man holding the boy hostage. 65-year-old jimmy lee dikes is dead. now according to officials. officers stormed the bunker after negotiations had deteriorated with dikes and officers believed the boy was in imminent danger. five-year-old was taken to a nearby hospital for evaluation. at this time it is still unclear how exactly dikes died. he snatched the boy after killing a driver and there is a police press conference and when it happens we will bring you that when it happens.
meanwhile, in other news, our campaigner in chief pounds the pavement. he is desperately trying to push through stricter gun control laws. the anointed one took his case to the people of minnesota and made one thing loud and clear about gun control policies, it's not a perfect solution. >> there won't be perfect solutions, we're not going to save every life, but we can make a difference. that is our responsibility as americans. that is what i'll do every single day as long as i've got the honor of serving as your president. >> sean: not a perfect solution. make no mistake what he is doing today. it's a blatant move to undercut the nra and he spoke to the minneapolis police department saying gun owners support his measures. it's senseless arguments like this that literally do nothing to even advance his cause. >> if we still had a ten round
limit on magazines, the gunman that shot gab gi bi may not have inflicted 33 rounds, 15 seconds. some of the people in tucson might still be with us. >> sean: there is no way he can draw that conclusion. mr. president that is what we call rampant speculation. he is pressing for a ban on firearms and universal background checks that nra claims is way to punish good law abiding citizens. >> it's a fraud to call it universal. it will never be universal. the criminals could care less. you are not going to computerize the mental health records. we ought to quick calling it universe a.m. check. real title, check on law abiding people all over this country. >> sean: too things to take away
from his campaign. one, what you are seeing is a president attempting to push through legislation that may look good but clearly does not need to make sense. number two, this is president who continues to have misplaced priorities. where is the same attention and intensity when it comes to the lack of jobs and 50 million americans on food stamps? we learned the economy was shrinking and unemployment is back up to 7.9% and all this news is pouring out. here is what the president is addressing. >> i am here today because the time has come for common sense, comprehensive immigration reform. >> my attitude that gays and lesbians should have access and opportunity the same way everybody else does in every institution and walk of life. >> the only way we can reduce gun violence in this country is if the american people decide if it is important. if parents and teachers, police
officers and pastors, hunters and sportsman, americans of every background stand up and say it's got to be different. >> sean: with reaction, is ann coulter. did you see the picture of his skeet shooting. first of all when you skeet shooting you shoot up. number one he is not holding it right. >> the great constitutional law scholar second amendment the fishermaners of the constitution really like skeet shooting. that is not what it is about. wait until the photos of him taking birth control pills fighting the war on women. >> sean: let's go to what is interesting here. president wants to talk about gay scout masters apparently accepting, gay marriage, gun control. watering down welfare requirements. abortion rights. war on women everything but the
bad economy. strategic, purposeful? >> yes, but i would like to concentrate what is being repeated on the "new york times" and editorials why the president himself, he says if we want to do something to reduce these gun shootings all we have to do is for the american people to want to do something. no, we need the aclu and mentally ill to stop this shooting. this kid that was kidnapped in alabama and finally released, that was crazy man that took him. everyone knew he was crazy. american sniper great american male, more shots at the enemy he was killed by a man with a history of mental problems. >> sean: conservative talk radio. >> aurora, tucson, this is crazy people. everything they are telling you
what they can do about guns is lie. problem with universal background checks one,have them now. any licensed gun dealer is performing a background check. if you are walking through a gun show, everybody is doing background checks. the only people who are not suggested to background checks are people giving them to their sons or selling one to their brother in law. the only way to enforce the 1% by collectors is to have universal gun registration. that is an important point. for some reason, wayne is not making it. universal background collection mean universal registration and that means universal extermination. that is how it goes in history. do not fall for it. universal background checks. point two of this thing about how in the "new york times" editorial page today or yesterday and from the hearings last week that a gun in the home
is more likely to be used against the owner than to kill an untruther. whole thing is a lie that is way most ways is used to kill someone is suicide. that is more than 90% of those cases. you might say, having a gun they are going to commit suicide. no, that is false. suicide rates do not go up with the availability of guns. japanese have no guns. they have twice the highest suicide rate. no matter what gun laws, suicide rates have nothing to do with that. and finally, what we only count a homeowner repelling an intruder, if he murders him and kills him or holds them in the police. that doesn't count in the equation. that is why they are telling you in order to prevent americans from self-defense only the government has a monopoly on guns. >> sean: i think it's fits with
the narrative. if he talks about immigration and guns and climate control, then the media race to every republican, what do you think about what obama said and we don't focus on the economy. one other issue.... >> to follow up your point. it's to demonize people that are legal gun owners and obama, look at him. he cares about the children. screw you. you don't think we care about the children. you don't do anything about the mentally ill. mass murderers have gone up since the institutional movement. homicide rate is going down. homeless people have gone up. mass shootings have gone up. homicide rated is gone down and mentally ill and liberals won't do anything about it. >> sean: kids with autism and down's syndrome. here is my on other question. then it goes into senator menendez is involved potentially an underage prostitution scandal.
>> right. >> sean: being flown out that owns the irs $11 million but he was foot tapping bathroom stall republican or his name is mark foley we would be over the fact we have a huge scandal. where is the coverage of this in the mainstream media. >> they are giving the john edwards' coverage. >> sean: pretty much. >> not cog covering it. maybe it's not true. but certainly more evidence with these under age prostitutes themselves sending in videos and saying that he slept with this them in the dominican republic all of which was broken by the daily caller. you won't read about it in the "new york times." there is certainly more evidence the claim that romney didn't pay his taxes. >> shep: last question. there is --. >> sean: there is a battle that is going on, "new york times" establishment republicans want
more influence, raise more money for candidates to stop tea party candidates from winning elections. now a tea party candidate would be marco rubio, mike lee, ted cruz? >> it's a terrible mistake to stop in those men. look, i doubt that is how they have billed their pact. i do think republicans should not have run, sharron angle, christine o'donnell, todd aiken we have given up senate seats. we have to stop talking about abortion and say yes -- and when we have problems like that could cost us amnesty didn't ks cost us obamacare we have to be careful to get candidates that will say stupid things. >> sean: there are other tea party conservatives in the primary. we have to roll. good to see you. >> good to see you.

>> sean: we are awaiting a press conference in alabama after f.b.i. agents rescued a five-year-old child who was being held in a bunker. the captor is dead. president obama made it all the way to minneapolis to tout his agenda today. one may think he would find a time to make a stopover in chicago where gun violence is plaguing that city. as of thursday of last week there were already 42 murders in 2013. after 15-year-old girl was shot to death near obama's oled old
home, students and community leaders took to the streets to shine light on the problem. jesse jackson was among them and is calling for homeland security to patrol the streets of the city. he resorted to pleading directly to the president's help. license plate to this. >> this is not, it's about fixing the school where they attended. whole world is watching us. we are urging the president to consider coming here that may illuminated this darkness. >> sean: joining us with reaction is pollster for americans prosperity. jennifer is back with us. you notice it's every liberal city, seriously, the toughest gun laws, most murders and most violence, most masmt hem. why is that? >> because liberal ideology fails but it fails first on the economic front. the problems started there in
chicago in 1930s and how many more chin are going to be sacrificed. the president doesn't want to go there. they do have a strictest gun laws in the country. if we can't use that false narrative he has to talk about why. so many democratic cities are failing. >> sean: why isn't gay marriage and gun control, global warming. >> it's desertion in the economy. nobody seems to care about that. we now the economy that actually lost, we have higher unemployment, but what we have is rahm emanuel the mayor of chicago, let no crisis go to waste. we whip off this proposal we've been sitting on the shelf that doesn't do anything. what i think they ought to do, i thought reverend jackson's comments were interesting. instead of homeland security because all they have is tsa
agents, send the national guard. you got a slow motion slaughter of children going on day after day. >> sean: i have a better idea. dead fish is failed to protect the people. >> he is going to lead the fight against banks and gun manufacturers. his people are being killed daily and he can't stop it. >> sean: dead fish, i have suggestion for him. i want to see the violence stop in chicago, too. there is one person he should invite in to solve those problems and that is rudy guliani. bring him to chicago, he dropped the murder rate from 2500 to below 500 in new york. >> absolutely. start addressing the problem. look at most violent cities in america. they are all run by democrats. you have to hear me out. this is fair and not political. as a mother i don't think it is fair that people are forced to live with this liberal ideology
they think is going to help the poor when it hurts the poor. johnson's war on poverty was a we're on the poor. they don't give them choices to send them to school. they don't have anywhere to grow. >> sean: you disagree, why? >> saying a democratic mayor, these things in big cities it's a problem they have not solved their gang problem. i lived in l.a.. this is because, you have terrible education systems that are failing. >> sean: and also the gangs violence, but what about the change in the educational system. >> teachers unions. of course they are democratic party. my party, the fact is in places like chicago, between the corruption, the unions and what has been historic problem by the way in 1930s it goes back to having mobs involved.
we have gangster city and gangster politics. we have a mayor that should be doing something with this problem that isn't. >> it's unfortunate. >> the president should go there because it is his hometown. you know why, because he wants to have a solution that is cosmetic rather than deal with the real problems, mental health and whole bit. >> i love it, conversion. beautiful. >> please. >> that is very sweet. >> sean: peace and love on the hannity program. will the obama administration admit the interrogation methods that was implemented by george w. bush, that is what led us to bin laden. we'll check in with liz cheney and frank luntz will play for

>>. >> sean: fox news alert. we are awaiting a press conference after the standoff in alabama. five-year-old boy is safe and kidnapper is dead. we'll have the latest. meanwhile, over the weekend, president obama outgoing defense secretary leon panetta confirmed information that was gathered through detainees that were put in place by president bush in fact help lead to the killing of osama bin laden. here is what the secretary said when he was asked about the new movie zero dark 30. >> there has been a debate, the movie seems to indicate that enhanced interrogation techniques were used to get bin laden, is that true? >> you know, first of all it's a
movie. let's remember that. i lived the real story. the real story in order to put the puzzle of intelligence together that led us to bin laden, there was a lot of intelligence. there were a lot of pieces in the puzzle. some of it came from some of the tactics that were used at that time were used. the fact is we put together most of that intelligence without having to resort to that. >> you think you could have gotten it? >> i think we could have gotten him without that. >> sean: directly contradicts statements by the obama administration in the past. >> you say with certainty that bin laden's hideout would have been found without the advanced interrogation techniques? >> i can say with certainty that no single piece of information with the exception with the address of the compound was
vital to this because we're talking about tiny bits of information that were compiled by unbelievably competent professionals. >> the information that was acquired that led to our knowledge about this compound came from multiple sources. sometimes individuals provide information willingly and sometimes they did unwittingly. the tracking of bin laden's whereabouts put the puzzle together so there was no one critical bit of information that was provided by either a detainee or somebody else. >> sean: joining me is liz cheney. maybe you can explain, why is this president can never accept plame blame for bad decisions and can't even knowledge what is an obvious simple truth that those eit's give them intelligence that led to the
capture and compiling of bin laden? >> i don't know why. i think part of it has to do he doesn't want to have to take steps that truly are necessary for us to ultimately win the war on terror. i would like to see him apologize to the brave men and women in the c.i.a. the patriots that undertook this program and kept us safe. what i would like to see happen in terms of security of the nation going forward, i would like to see him explain how it is we are going to continue to prevail against insurgent al-qaeda when we are in longer capturing terrorists. at the end of the day this is war we win with intelligence and we don't have the tools anymore to get the intelligence we need. >> sean: we're going to pay a huge price down the road. we're going to be saying, why did we stop doing those things. jose rodriguez that witnessed enhanced interrogation, he was on this program, no eit, no bin
laden. watch the tape. >> so you don't think we would have gotten bin laden without techniques leading to the intelligence? >> the reason why because there a clear trail. there was someone we captured, a facilitator we captured in 2004 that told us about bin laden's currier and gave us a tsunami anymore and eventually we got the -- pseudonym. >> but the things he opposed wouldn't have allowed him to make that decision is that a fair statement? >> that is fair statement. >> sean: he was there. he knows the intelligence. he is telling everybody the truth. they keep denying it. is it a simple reason that the president was wrong in supporting it? >> clearly he was wrong. their relationship with the truth, i'm reminded when hillary clinton says what difference
does it make because of a video or terrorist attack. now, they say, the program got us the intel that led to bin laden, it makes all the difference. that the terms of credit like jose rodriguez that undertook the program but also you have to keep the nation safe going forward. when they say things like we could have gotten the intel some other way, we could have gotten it without it. we could have liberated europe without the d-day landing. it's not accurate. >> sean: and liberal media repeats it. i'm concerned about f-16s and tanks going to morsi who has purged the egyptian military who we thought we may be able to counted on and put his puppets in place there. how dangerous is that that the senate last week had an opportunity to stop giving f-16s to this 9/11 truther, this guy
that things the israelis of descendants of apes and pigs, we will give them weapons that could be used against israel? >> you are exactly right. there were some republican seniors snrs that would have stopped the sale. anybody out there that is represented by one of those senators ought to write to their senator and tell them we should not be delivering weapon systems like f-16s to a president frankly who allowed our embassy to be overrun, who allowed the al-qaeda flag to fly over the embassy. we need to reevaluate that relationship and not provide the assistance and support we have in the past without any signs of commitment on the other side in terms of security guarantees we need to have. >> sean: liz, good to see you. >> thank you. >> sean: when we come back an incident that took place in england. also when we come back, time to

and not having the discipline and time management. values and character. schools serve a different purpose in many different ways. >> sean: baby-sitting service? >> along with the academics i think that teachers are required to do a lot more. they are serving multiple roles. >> sean: i think that is fair statement. i don't blame teachers, there are great teachers but we are not demanding what these kids are capable of. we don't want to test them. we don't want teachers to look bad. why don't we do that? >> i think you are absolutely right. it's a problem with the bureaucracy. i think there are plenty of educators that want to do the right thing. we also believe at students first, all kids can learn when they are put in the right school environment, a rigorous school. the problem is they are forced to operate in this bureaucracy
